Background and Prior Art of the invention
As is currently known, there are no unmanned aerial vehicle docking stations for special hot and cold zones known as dronedeek temperature control devices or the like. The product is considered unique in design and technology. Background on drone delivery and current industry and market should be useful. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) include a variety of vehicles, from conventional fixed-wing aircraft to helicopters to ornithopters (i.e., machines that fly like birds), and are used in a variety of roles. They may be remotely piloted by ground pilots, autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicles performing flight missions using preprogrammed coordinates, GPS navigation, etc., and the like. For example, for amateurs, UAVs may include remote controlled helicopters as well as airplanes. UAVs may be equipped with cameras to provide images during flight that may be used for navigation or other purposes, such as identifying house addresses, etc. UAVs can also be equipped with sensors to provide local weather and atmospheric conditions, radiation levels, and other conditions. The UAV may also include cargo holds, hooks, or other means for carrying a payload. New generation UAVs can also provide significant payload capabilities. Thus, UAVs can also be used to deliver packages, groceries, mail, and other items. Using UAVs for delivery can reduce costs and increase speed and accuracy. However, the range provided by current UAV technology makes delivery over a large range (e.g., an entire city, or even a portion of a city) difficult.
The transportation of packages between an origin and a destination has traditionally been a labor intensive process. For short-range, "local" delivery, an item (e.g., a package) may be transported by delivery personnel between an origin and a destination. For example, a delivery person may drive a vehicle to transport an item between an origin and a destination, and may ensure that the item is properly retrieved and/or delivered according to delivery instructions. For longer distance deliveries, the transportation of the item may involve several delivery personnel who may individually perform one or more steps to extract the item, sort the item one or more times, transport the item from a final sorting location to a final delivery destination, and/or deliver the item from a delivery vehicle to a destination address (e.g., a service point). Because of the labor intensive nature of the process, various attempts have been made to assist carrier personnel by reducing the physical demands required during transportation and delivery; however, prior attempts have met with significant difficulty in ensuring that various aspects of the transport and delivery process are properly performed. For example, attempts have been made to transport items from a final sorting location to an intended delivery destination using unmanned vehicles, such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). However, these concepts are generally limited by the effective range of the UAV and the number of available UAVs that can be used to deliver items to locations that are quite remote from the final sort location. Accordingly, additional systems and methods are needed to assist carrier personnel, thereby reducing the physical requirements of the transportation and delivery process.
Typically the ordered items are wrapped in a shipping package (e.g., corrugated box) and shipped to the customer's residence or business location. In recent years, there has been a significant improvement in the delivery of physical items to a user-specified location, with some retailers offering alternate-day delivery of ordered items. Traditionally, manually controlled trucks, bicycles, carts, etc. are used to complete the last mile delivery of physical items to a user-specified location. For example, a user may order an item for delivery to home. Items may be picked from a ground-based materials handling facility, packaged and shipped to a user for ultimate delivery by a shipping carrier. The shipping carrier loads the items onto a truck driven by a human operator to a final delivery location, and the human operator or others in the same trip as the operator will retrieve the items from the truck and complete the delivery to the destination. For example, a person may hand an item to a recipient, place the item on the user's doorway, store the item in a post office box, etc. In a new age in which the world is changing at hand, technology must keep up with consumer habits. Efficiency, cost savings, technology, convenience, greater safety, etc. have all contributed to the development of the U.S. and global market economy.
One emerging economic component is the last mile stream. In this part of the transportation economy, there is a rapidly evolving aspect known as drone delivery. The ever changing indicators in the global ecosystem now require autonomous delivery at all times more than ever before. Droonedek produced by the same. Droonedek currently owns two U.S. patents and continues to improve its product. In the united states, 170 thousands of packages are stolen each day. The losses are in the billions. Droonedek addresses this problem by encrypted, authenticated delivery. In the united states, thousands of packages are shipped with errors each day. Droonedek addresses this problem by encrypted, authenticated delivery. In this new world, keeping social distance will become "new normalcy". Dronedeek allows carriers, delivery personnel, and recipients to maintain social distance while enhancing the user experience.
The millennium generation is a growing power in the united states and the global economy, which has their own way of doing things. More and more people work at home, reducing outages, and expect to get an "out of home" experience at home. Droonedek produced by the same. DRONEDEK brings so many features and benefits to the user experience while still providing more. In addition to the above needs, consumers want to buy now. Drooneek is an important component of the emerging drone delivery economy. Faster, cheaper delivery of items by drones, unmanned vehicles, or robots can only solve part of the problem. If these items are not delivered into a secure, intelligent, secure container, everything gained in the process is lost at the front door. Package delivery is the fastest growing segment of the delivery business. Droonedek will speed up the time it occurs. Additionally, droonedek will turn on other aspects of delivery by autonomous vehicle. Food, beverage, and drug delivery would all benefit from the droneek platform.
This market includes all residential and commercial street addresses in the united states. 1 billion items are purchased daily on the internet with 91% of e-commerce deliveries weighing less than 5 pounds, which matches the weight bearing capacity of a typical drone, and fits into a 24x24 inch diameter cargo hold of DRONEDEK. Retail statistics showing the accelerated trend of online commerce and the faster growth of unsafe traditional delivery theft or package thieves indicate that the secure drone container market will grow exponentially. The United States Postal Service (USPS) reports that 170 thousands of USPS packages are stolen per day, thereby increasing the market relevance of DRONDEK and the need for its intelligent, secure drone delivery solution. Today, carrier personnel estimate a cost of $ 2 per delivery, while drone delivery estimates a cost savings of $ 1 per delivery for the logistics industry. Thus, the business model and smart mailbox of DRONEDEK provide pioneering savings of $ 10 million for the logistics industry every 11 days.
Problems to be solved
As a device to extend the docking station of an unmanned aerial vehicle, there are several improvements and problems to solve: the unmanned aerial vehicle docking station of the special hot and cold zones called as the droonedek temperature control equipment provides temperature control for the storage zone to provide a cold storage zone and a hot storage zone for a plurality of packages; it is used for ultraviolet or ozone disinfection/detoxification to eliminate infectious diseases, viruses and bacteria; it provides intercommunication for other unmanned aerial vehicles, UAVs, AUVS, and robotic delivery within the area; the system is used as a weather monitoring station, traffic, human and pet activities, is provided with a facial recognition camera, and can label and track mechanisms; it exchanges information with suppliers, collects information for big data collection and marketing information and data networking, and uses block chain technology; at the location of the DRONEDEK docking station, it provides floodlights, two-way speakers, alarms, and flashing and colored lighting for security and communications; it houses a mobile unit for placing the unit where it is needed or desired; it monitors the weight and size of the package, enabling the package to be marked for return; it has robot/AUVS (automated unmanned vehicle system) assisted assist mechanisms to unload packages to droneek; and it has an auxiliary feature, can provide charging stations or battery replacement for drones and UAVs.

On the external camera system 61, they have a face recognition system, which is a technology that can identify or verify a person from a digital image or a video frame from a video source. Face recognition systems work in a variety of ways, but generally they work by comparing selected facial features in a given image to faces in a database. It is also described as a biometric-based artificial intelligence application that is capable of recognizing a person by analyzing patterns based on the facial texture and shape of the person. Although originally in the form of computer applications, it has recently gained wider application in mobile platforms and other forms of technology, such as robotics. It is commonly used as an access control in security systems and can be compared to other biometrics, such as fingerprint or eye iris recognition systems. Although the accuracy of the face recognition system as a biometric technology is lower than that of iris recognition and fingerprint recognition, it is widely adopted due to its non-contact and non-invasive processes. Recently, it has also become popular as a business identification and marketing tool. Other applications include advanced human-computer interaction, video surveillance, automatic indexing of images, and video databases, among others.
As for the barcode reader 73, the barcode reader (or barcode scanner) is an optical scanner capable of reading a printed barcode, decoding data contained in the barcode, and transmitting the data to a computer. Like a flatbed scanner, it consists of a light source, a lens, and a photosensor that converts light pulses into electrical signals. Additionally, almost all barcode readers contain decoder circuitry capable of analyzing the barcode image data provided by the sensor and transmitting the contents of the barcode to the output port of the scanner. The barcode reader can be distinguished by the following techniques: the pen reader consists of a light source and a photodiode placed adjacent to each other in the pen tip. To read a bar code, the person holding the pen must move the pen tip across the bar code at a relatively uniform speed. The photodiode measures the intensity of light reflected from the light source as the pen tip moves over each bar and blank area in the printed code. The photodiode generates a waveform that is used to measure the width of bars and spaces in the bar code. The dark bars in the bar code absorb light and the blank regions reflect light so that the voltage waveform generated by the photodiode represents the bar and blank region patterns in the bar code. The waveform is decoded by the scanner in a manner similar to decoding Morse code points and short transverse lines. Laser scanners operate in the same manner as pen-type readers, except that they use a laser beam as the light source and typically employ a reciprocating mirror or a rotating prism to scan the laser beam back and forth across the bar code. Like a pen-type reader, a photodiode is used to measure the intensity of light reflected from a bar code. In pen readers and laser scanners, the intensity of the light emitted by the reader varies rapidly with the data pattern, and the photodiode receiving circuit is designed to detect only signals having the same modulation pattern. CCD readers use arrays of hundreds of miniature light sensors that are arranged in a row at the reader head. Each sensor will measure the light intensity directly in front of it. Each individual photosensor in a CCD reader is very small because there are hundreds of sensors in a row, and by sequentially measuring the voltage across each sensor in the row, the same voltage pattern is generated in the reader as in the barcode. An important difference between a CCD reader and a pen or laser scanner is that the CCD reader measures the ambient light emitted by the bar code, while the pen or laser scanner measures reflected light at a particular frequency originating from the scanner itself. LED scanners can also be manufactured using CMOS sensors and are replacing early laser-based readers.
For collector panel 80: an explosive trace detection gate machine, also known as a trace gate machine, commonly known as a gas blow (pumffer) machine, is a safety device intended to detect explosives and illegal drugs in airports and other sensitive facilities as part of airport security screening. These machines are intended as auxiliary screening devices, in addition to, and not as a replacement for, conventional X-ray machines. The term "trace detection" means that the machine is capable of detecting very small "traces" of these compounds. The exact sensitivity of these machines is not yet informative, but mass spectrometers detect compounds at the molecular level and are only limited by the efficiency with which samples can be taken from blown air for analysis. Some companies use Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) technology to be able to detect explosives such as RDX, PETN, TNT, and nitroglycerin. It is also capable of detecting controlled substances such as cannabis, cocaine, heroin, PCP, methamphetamine, and MDMA. A system was developed that was physically similar but internally different. It uses Mass Spectrometry (MS) technology, can detect 16 explosive compounds, has a sensitivity 10-100 times higher than IMS, and can analyze multiple compounds at the same time, and can execute shoe bullet detection without taking off shoes. This collection technology is also significantly different and offers a drug screening portal as a separate product. The machine operates by delivering a plurality of streams of air to passengers standing upright within the machine. This will clear the robot of any particles on the person and then analyse and identify them in a few seconds. It can screen up to 180 passengers per hour. The sample is then analyzed using IMS or MS techniques to find specific explosive or narcotic compounds. If a substance of interest is detected, security personnel are notified by a visual and/or audible alarm. The machine can also be used for other biohazardous materials related to but not limited to biological and bacterial warfare chemicals and biohazards.
The mechanisms, sensors, etc. of the microclimate station 120 take into account the following background: the utility model provides a novel practical miniature meteorological station can perception temperature, relative humidity, pressure and wind speed, and is small, convenient to carry, and the precision is high. The miniature weather station comprises a multi-sensor chip, an anemometer, a measuring system, a display system and a power management system. Based on MEMS technology, multi-sensor chips integrating temperature, relative humidity and pressure are developed and manufactured. A drag force wind sensor using cantilever moment to measure wind speed was developed. The wind direction can be measured by vertically encapsulating the dual wind sensors. The procedure used is very simple and compatible compared to the procedures used by other types of microclimate stations. All results show excellent performance of the microclimate station. Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) are a process technology used to create miniature integrated devices or systems that incorporate mechanical and electrical components. They are manufactured using Integrated Circuit (IC) batch processing techniques and range in size from a few microns to a few millimeters. Weather monitoring is very important in many areas, such as: agriculture, military, recreation, etc. There are several solutions to monitoring weather. Classical solutions include static weather stations. Another solution is based on Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). A third solution uses a low size weather station. A weather station is described herein that consists of temperature, humidity, pressure, and luminosity sensors embedded in a microcontroller-based circuit board. The station is controlled by the mobile SMS service. Weather sensors from microsystems companies are redefining what an integrated weather sensor should be. Everything that is needed for weather sensing is integrated into one unit. It includes 27 environmental parameters, a processor, a communication unit, and a solar energy system. These portable weather sensors are small, lightweight, and take on the work previously reserved for larger, more complex systems. Within 60 seconds of turning them on, they may transmit local conditions using a cellular or iridium satellite link. With these advantages in size, weight, and robustness, our weather sensors are opening new markets and locations for autonomous weather sensors. Typical expectations for weather stations include (for example and not by way of limitation): cloud-based data logging, solar energy, and a processor; a two-way cellular or iridium satellite connection; integrating panoramic imaging; an expansion port; the device is firm and portable; the installation is simple; and autonomous operation. The weather data collected is typically: (ii) a temperature; air pressure; humidity; wind speed; wind direction; reading by a compass; the angle is inclined; visibility; dust accumulation; a lightning distance; a visual image; precipitation; the current weather; and a GPS location.
The monitoring communication unit 122 for painting/labeling and tracking considers the following: the drone 50 and these docking stations 131 are able to mark and track the source using a nanoparticle spray. The united states air force is funding a task for unmanned aerial vehicles to mark suspect or car with aerosol, making them unique spectral signatures, making them easy to track. On roads northern of pakistan where dust flies, an unsightly car bypasses a corner. At 50 meters overhead, the drone buzzes in an invisible place, spraying a fine mist on the roof as it passes under. Vehicles are now tagged and can be tracked kilometers away by infrared scanners on large drones. Since the united states air force has contracted to develop drone-based marking systems, such a scenario may quickly evolve. The marking material-tracer-can be used to discreetly mark vehicles carrying smuggled goods, or people participating in civilian resistance or attempting illegal border crossings. Interest in marking technology is driven in part by the increasing pressure of the white house on civilian death from unmanned aerial vehicle assaults in the united states. Marking by drone will allow people to be tracked for subsequent apprehensions. Some tagging agents are based on quantum dots-semiconductor nanocrystals that span less than 50 atoms. Because of quantum effects, they absorb and emit light of a particular wavelength. Companies have demonstrated marking powders that can be detected by infrared cameras 2 km away when illuminated with an invisible ultraviolet laser. The powder is delivered in aerosol form attached to metal, glass and cloth, and batches can be designed with different spectral signatures. The nanocrystals will be ejected by a manual drone with a span of less than 1.5 meters, which is quite quiet, with a range of up to several kilometers. The larger predator drone may then illuminate the target with an ultraviolet laser and track its progress. "nanocrystals can be ejected by a manual drone and illuminated with a laser. But accurate spraying of the marking agent can be troublesome. They have experimented with a small drone delivering a simulated marker made of colored sugar beads for cake decoration. They want to coat the road with such things that it can stick to the wheels of any driven vehicle. However, the beads are blown away by the wind as soon as they are sprayed. Therefore, the team developed software to simulate the effects of wind to account for it when injecting. When they input estimates of wind speed and direction based on the readings of the drone sensors, the drone may hit the target from an altitude of 45 meters. More advanced systems will allow accurate marking from greater distances, which will be more efficient, as the drone may not be audible when flying over 60 meters. The U.S. department of homeland security expresses an interest in providing non-lethal attack capabilities for drones used by its customs and border protection authorities. Any such behavior is necessarily controversial and the marking may be more readily accepted by the U.S. public opinion. Drones may also use smart markers during a disturbance, enabling related personnel to be identified and an arrest to be performed later. Since the use of water cannons with non-grindable dyes to mark a riot, many methods of marking someone have been developed-marking techniques. A company produces a series of products containing unique synthetic DNA sequences. These include automatic ejectors for marking intruders, personal defense ejectors, and paintball handguns that are capable of marking individuals 30 meters away.
For the ultraviolet detoxification/disinfection unit 125: ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a disinfection method that uses short wavelength ultraviolet light (ultraviolet C or UVC) to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and destroying their DNA, rendering them unable to perform important cellular functions. UVGI is used in various applications, such as food, air, and water purification. The UVC light at the earth's surface is weak because it is blocked by the ozone layer of the atmosphere. UVGI devices are capable of producing UVC light in circulating air or water systems that is strong enough to render them unsuitable for microbial environments such as bacteria, viruses, molds, and other pathogens. The UVGI can be combined with a filtration system to clean air and water. Since the middle of the 20 th century, the use of UVGI for disinfection has become a recognized practice. It is mainly used for medical sanitation and aseptic working facilities. It is increasingly used to disinfect drinking water and wastewater because the holding facilities are closed and can be circulated to ensure higher ultraviolet light exposure. In recent years, UVGI has gained new applications in air purifiers. Ultraviolet light is electromagnetic radiation having a wavelength shorter than visible light but longer than X-rays. Ultraviolet light is divided into several wavelength ranges, with short-wave Ultraviolet (UVC) being considered "germicidal ultraviolet". Wavelengths between about 200nm and 300nm are strongly absorbed by nucleic acids. The absorbed energy can lead to defects, including pyrimidine dimers. These dimers can prevent replication or can prevent expression of the necessary proteins, resulting in death or inactivation of the organism.
Mercury lamps operating at low vapor pressure emit ultraviolet light at a wavelength of 253.7 nm.
Ultraviolet light emitting diode (UVC LED) lamps emit ultraviolet light at a selectable wavelength between 255 and 280 nm.
The pulsed xenon lamp emits ultraviolet light throughout the ultraviolet spectrum with a peak emission wavelength near 230nm.
Microorganisms have poor protection against ultraviolet rays and cannot be exposed to ultraviolet rays for a long time. UVGI systems are designed to expose environments such as water tanks, sealed rooms, and forced air systems to germicidal ultraviolet light. The exposure is from a germicidal lamp, which emits germicidal ultraviolet light at the correct wavelength, thus illuminating the environment. Exposure is ensured by forced air or water flow through the environment. The degree of inactivation by uv radiation is directly related to the uv dose applied to the water. Dose is the product of ultraviolet light intensity and exposure time and is typically measured in units of microjoules per square centimeter or equivalent microwatts seconds per square centimeter (ws/cm 2). The dose range for killing 90% of most bacteria and viruses is 2000 to 8000 wa/cm 2. Larger parasites such as cryptosporidium require lower inactivation doses. Thus, the united states environmental protection agency has accepted uv disinfection as a method of gaining cryptosporidium, giardia, or virus inactivation credit for drinking water plants. For example, to reduce cryptosporidium by 90%, a minimum dose of 2500 μ W · s/cm2 is required based on the U.S. EPA UV guidance Manual published in 2006. The effectiveness of germicidal ultraviolet radiation depends on the length of time the microorganisms are exposed to ultraviolet light, the intensity and wavelength of the ultraviolet radiation, the presence of particles capable of protecting the microorganisms from ultraviolet light, and the ability of the microorganisms to withstand ultraviolet light during exposure. In many systems, the redundancy of exposing microorganisms to ultraviolet light is achieved by repeatedly circulating air or water. This ensures multiple passes, making the uv effective against the maximum number of microorganisms, and multiple exposures of the resistant microorganisms to break them down. "sterilization" is often mistaken for a realizable one. Although theoretically feasible in a controlled environment, it is difficult to prove and companies that provide this service often use the word "disinfection" to avoid reprimand by law. Professional companies will typically advertise some log reduction, e.g., 6 log reduction or 99.9999% effective, rather than sterilization. This takes into account a phenomenon known as photo repair and dark repair (photo-activated and base excision repair, respectively), in which cells are able to repair DNA damaged by ultraviolet light. The effectiveness of this form of disinfection depends on the line of sight exposure of the microorganisms to uv light. It is not as efficient to design an environment that creates an obstacle to blocking ultraviolet light. In such environments, effectiveness depends on the location of the UVGI system, making line of sight most suitable for disinfection. Dust and films on the bulb can reduce the ultraviolet output. Therefore, the bulbs need to be cleaned and replaced regularly to ensure effectiveness. The life of germicidal ultraviolet light bulbs varies by design. Furthermore, the material from which the bulb is made is capable of absorbing some of the germicidal radiation.
For the ozone detoxification/disinfection unit 130 that disinfects with O3: microorganisms cause problems in various places and in the clinical environment, bacteria may cause dangerous outbreaks. Ozone can be used as a chemical disinfectant to kill bacteria and viruses with low ozone concentrations. The contact time varies depending on the desired level of inactivation. For many applications, a 99.99% reduction of bacteria (equivalent to a 4 log reduction) is sufficient, for higher inactivation levels the solution is easily adjusted to provide higher concentrations and exposure times, and even bacterial spores can be treated in the adjusted solution. The above figures are applicable to treatment in rooms and ventilation ducts, which have been used with ozone to limit the spread of airborne microorganisms in the food industry and food storage. Non-contact techniques include the use of ultraviolet lamps and chemicals dispersed in aerosol or gaseous form to inactivate microorganisms. Compared with other air sterilization treatment methods, ozone can effectively sterilize a large amount of air and neutralize microorganisms including viruses. This makes it very suitable for medical applications, for example in hospitals or doctor's waiting rooms. An important factor enabling savings is the time the detergent is able to actively inactivate the bacteria. After the treatment is completed, the ozone concentration is adjusted to the desired logarithmic reduction, and the ozone either decomposes naturally to oxygen in a few hours or is significantly accelerated using ozone destructors.

large data collection is expected to use blockchain techniques. A simple explanation for this is that a block in a chain of blocks is a collection of data. Data is added to a tile in the chain of tiles, creating a chain of linked-together tiles by connecting it with other tiles in time sequence. The first block in the chain of blocks is called a century creation block. A blockchain is a decentralized, distributed public digital ledger for recording transactions across multiple computers so that any record involved cannot be changed retrospectively without changing all subsequent blocks.

Operation of the preferred embodiment
The particular hot and cold zones of the drone docking station, referred to as the drooneek temperature control devices 131, 30, have been described in the above embodiments. The manner in which the device operates is described below. It should be noted that the above description and the operations described herein must be combined to fully illustrate the concept of a drone docking station for special hot and cold zones called droonedeks 131, 30. The preferred embodiment of the drone docking station for special hot and cold zones called the droneek temperature control device 131 is: a drone docking station and delivery box 131 for receiving drone deliveries having multiple sets of hot and cold zones, comprising: (a) Means and structure for providing hot and cold zones that can be rolled to one side so that the droneek 131 can separate multiple wraps with plate-lifting plates and maintain the wrap temperature through powered hot/cold plate temperature assist 160; (b) Positioning means 100, 102 of the drone docking station such that the drone may accurately approach and dock at the drone docking station; (c) Means to engage 51, 62 the drone docking station 131 so that a stable connection or attachment can be made; (d) Means 63, 64, 65 for transferring the contents 40 of the drone to the interior 33 of the drone docking station 131; (e) Means for maintaining a state, such as temperature control means, and means for securely storing the delivered cargo once it arrives in the drone docking station; (f) Means 51, 62 to disengage (release) from the drone docking station 131; (g) Encrypted communication means 108, 110 between the drone 50 and the drone docking station 131, either directly or through a remote server (Wi-Fi, bluetooth, satellite, etc.); (h) A set of functional components 71, 71A within the delivery box to allow for the preservation of stored goods and their security and to prevent damage during transfer and/or subsequent storage (soft storage); (i) Means 39A for securing the delivery box to the structure of the residential or commercial address 107; (j) A set of optional features including a charging station 76 and a battery replacement mechanism 81; a collector 80 for identifying explosives, anthrax, and the like; an ultraviolet scanning 125 system for the destruction of diseases, viruses and harmful substances; an ozone applicator 130 for destroying diseases, viruses, and harmful substances; (k) A set of identification features such as a bar code reader 73, weight and size sensors 93, and a label printer 115 for returning packages; (l) A set of features on the drone dock for weather monitoring 120, marking and tracking 122 vehicles and parcels, etc. and, once painted, tracking items using GPS, and a camera 61 with facial recognition software for tracking people and pets; and, (m) a set of local features such as a two-way speaker and loud audio 94, a colored and strobable LED light 92, and a floodlight 78.
The drone docking station for the special hot and cold zones called the droneek temperature control device 131 works as follows: a security encryption code 110 may be employed that the drone 50 accesses to direct the docking station to open the sliding door 34 on top of it to allow secure delivery into the bin 131. Instead of a code, the drone may trigger the opening of the drone docking station by simply accessing its landing base. Final communication between unmanned aerial vehicle and unmanned aerial vehicle docking station 131 can be through the electronic or magnetic connection that goes on when unmanned aerial vehicle lands and is connected with the case. When docked, communication between the docking or delivery box and the drone itself may be direct to facilitate transmission of the code in the lockbox. In an alternative embodiment, a remote server may be employed whereby the drone communicates its location and docking details to the remote server, which then signals or otherwise directly communicates or sends the associated IP address to the case to trigger the case to unlock and open. The box may also communicate via RFID to identify itself to the drone (and vice versa) and communicate the barcode or ID sequence required for docking and unlocking. In a similar manner, once the drone is within range of the delivery box and its bluetooth signal, the code may be communicated to the drone using the bluetooth signal. In some embodiments, the box will pass GPS navigation to the drone for proper docking and transfer into the box. After successful storage in the docking station, the top will be securely closed to ensure that vandals, thieves or animals are prohibited from entering the docking station. The re-triggering of the closing can be done by direct communication between the drawing and the box or by a remote server in a similar way as the signal for opening. The case can also be designed for auto-close and lock after the drone breaks away from the case. And communication may also be via wireless networks (such as Wi-Fi, bluetooth satellite, etc.) and other means recognizable to those skilled in the art. When docked, communication between the docking or delivery box and the drone itself may be direct to facilitate transmission of the code in the lockbox. In an alternative embodiment, a remote server may be employed whereby the drone communicates its location and docking details to the remote server, which then signals or otherwise directly communicates or sends the associated IP address to the case to trigger the case to unlock and open. The box may also communicate via RFID to identify itself to the drone (and vice versa) and communicate the barcode 73 or ID sequence required for docking and unlocking. In a similar manner, once the drone is within range of the delivery box and its bluetooth signal, the bluetooth signal may be employed to communicate the code to the drone. In certain embodiments, the box will deliver GPS navigation to the drone for proper docking and transfer into the box. After successful storage in the docking station, the top will be securely closed to ensure that vandals, thieves or animals are prohibited from entering the docking station. The re-triggering of the closing can be done by direct communication between the drawing and the box or by a remote server in a similar way as the signal for opening. The case can also be designed for auto-close and locking after unmanned aerial vehicle breaks away from the case.
The box design may allow the item 40 to fall into its cavity opening 33 and onto the liftable plate 32F or the liner of the tamper-proof device 36 upon opening the lid (sliding door) 34. Items 40 will fall in and the cover (sliding door) 34 will return to their original position and not allow access to the inserted items except for the intended recipient. The Drone Dock 131, 30 will then report to its owner, carrier, and carrier that the item has been securely stored at the docking station and retrieve it. The drone docking station 131 may also report the charge status as well as the takeoff status to the carrier.
